Women Mean Business – Walking the Talk
Women on Corporate Boards Reception
Featuring Jan Babiak
Did you know companies with more women in executive leadership and board positions boast superior financial performance over their peers?
Jan Babiak, professional corporate board member, will share the benefits of gender diversity in business, as part of her speech during this reception.
According to Mrs. Babiak, companies that embrace gender diversity are better governed, better managed, and have better long-term growth prospects; this is particularly true when there is a critical mass of three or more women on a board.
Even though this clearly is a win-win proposition for both companies and their shareholders, a vast majority of U.S. companies have not yet integrated women at the board table, she continues. And to further confuse the issue, many of the companies who have not diversified their board tables even have women as their primary target audience and primary employment base.
Jan will also provide examples of how women leaders with different backgrounds, experiences and aspirations, can all be more effective — beyond just networking and talking about it. In fact, every woman with a checkbook can effectively support the economy and other women by how they spend their money, and she will explain just how to make that happen.
Guests and the public are welcome to attend. Registration deadline is Friday, April 15th.
